Front end links clicking

about a few months ago my front passenger side end links started making clicking noises whenever I turn at low speeds and small or big bumps. I did a full replacement on the front sway bar end links and fresh sway bar bushings. after all that, it's still making the clicking noise. What can it be?

Make sure that the strut bars are torqued correctly. I had my center one be barely loose and it caused a clicking nose on speed bumps or whenever the chassis flexed on turns. They need to be really tight, I remember the center one having a torque spec of 80+ lbft.

I've had two rounds of front suspension work done and I still have some sort of knuckle crack sound from somewhere. Pretty annoying, I'm working if it is the shock tower not being tight enough
